(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “As the World Turns” star Evan Alex Cole reveals that he has auditioned for a role on “One Life to Live.”
Cole, who has portrayed Lyon Hunter on “ATWT” since April 30, 2009, announced last Friday on his Facebook page that he was “going in for a contract role on ‘ONE LIFE TO LIVE’ today. What we think?” The actor will soon have more free time on his hands when “World Turns” wraps production in the coming weeks, and is scheduled to air its final episode in September.
While the 25-year-old Atlanta native hasn’t revealed the role he tested for, one possibly is for the new character of “TJ,” who is described as “a man with a real James Dean quality about him, and is sexy, handsome and edgy. He is silent, mysterious and brooding. He’s the kind of boy that all the girls want to ‘save’ and their parents want to keep away.” According to the casting call, “OLTL” is looking for a white male between the ages of 18 & 24 for the role.
